NFL Rule Change Proposals

The following plan to be discussed next week:

1. Playoff Seeding. Each of the four division winners in each conference would earn postseason berths, but only the two division winners in each conference with the best records would get automatic home games. The division winners with the lower two records, plus the two wild-card teams, would compete for seeds three through six based on record.

- I like that.

2. Owners will vote on proposals to eliminate the force-out of a receiver, similar to the college game; it was called 15 times last season. And a force-out would be called only if a defender picked up an offensive player and carried him out of bounds.

- I'd vote to keep it the same.

3. The committee is proposing to include field goals in instant replay review.

- Is this really necessary?

4. Give teams the option of deferring to receive the ball in the second half on the coin toss.

- I don't care.

5. Eliminate the 5-yard minor face mask penalty, covering all facemask violations - twisting, turning or pulling - with a 15-yard penalty.

- I don't like. There are some unintentional non-flagrant face mask grabbing where players let go quickly.

Also there is the "Chiefs Whine Like Babies Rule to be considered":

"The committee wants to create a five- to seven-day dead period before the start of veteran free agency during which certified agents can negotiate but not sign contracts for their clients.

There would be no player visit or contact allowed with prospective new teams. The Kansas City Chiefs, among others, have complained that other teams have had contact with prospective free agents prior to the signing period."

That sucks IMO it devalues division games...what incentive is there to win your division then? If you can make the playoffs @ 9-7 division winner or not, why would you want to win the division? I think the playoff format we have now is good, do not change it

I agree with all your responses re: the proposed rules.

It's unfortunate to see that the Chief's primary activity in free agency this offseason centered around Carl drafting the proposed language for this rule change.

Sometimes I wonder about FG's that are "above" the FG posts being good or not

The incentive is to win as many games possible and not just wrap up the division.

I think FGs of over 50 yards shoud count as 4 points.

wasn't there a game last season where a review would have changed the validity of a field goal?

I like the 5 yard "instant release" face mask penalty -- would not change that.

I approve of review for FGs. Remember the weird bounce in that Browns game?? Would've been terrible if that had been screwed up.

I'd also keep force outs, but I'm pretty ambivalent about it. Just don't throw high along the sidelines.

that is not an incentive i.e. reward

say for example the Chiefs (9-6) go into the final game of the season with the Broncos (9-6), for the AFC west title, either way either team gets into the playoffs (assume this is true regardless of other AFC variables) what incentive is there for either team to win the division? Why not just save your starters for the playoffs and play all the backups...which is the whole point behind this idea...the NFL wants meaningful week 16 and 17 games...if you are not going to be getting a home game what is the point of winning the division?

1. I was going to say that I wanted this rule to stay the same, ie. keep the emphasis on division games but, I really think the best overall plan for the game and the league is to force teams to win as many games as possible instead of tanking one at the end of the season because they can't do any better in playoff seeding. My vote-Change.

2. This is such a judgement call the way it is now. Would the player have come down in bounds if the defender did not push him? If I remember right this is not currently a reviewable play, so do away with it. My vote-Change.

3. I for one think if we are going to have replay, then use it every way possible. My vote-Change. Side note to this, I would prefer Joe Montana's opinion in that there aren't any FG's allowed and we just punt or go for it.

4. I'm a bit confused on this one. If you win the coin toss and choose to kick to start the game dosen't that automatically mean you receive to start the second half? If I were a coach it would be my normal practice to receive to start the second half so I would want that option yes. My vote-Change.

5. There are accidental face mask where there is not twisting and turning involved. My vote-Stay the same.

No, You don't want to encourage teams to kick FG's. Hence, the rule change a while back where if you miss a FG outside what it is the 20 the team gets the ball from the spot not the line of scrimmage.

This isn't fantasy football

Phil Dawson's FG for the Brownies.
